ABSTRACTA prospective descriptive study was performed to fifty patients from Plastic Surgery at Hermanos Ameijeiras Hospital. The study period was from July 2000 to December 2005. The aim is to describe the behavior of serum lipids in time after liposuction and its consequences in the body. Serum lipid profile samples were analyzed on preoperative and post-surgery days. Lipid fraction behavior was analyzed in time and its relation to the volume of extracted fat. Cholesterol, triglycerides and high density liopoproteina were serum lipids with more significant changes, different from the values of the low density lipoprotein. The very high density lipoprotein lipid fraction was significantly related to the extracted fat volume. Although this surgical procedure causes trauma to organism, it fails to significantly alter the metabolic response of lipids.
